Mr and Mrs Polluto by Total Insight Theatre – Small Is Beautiful Commission Winner

Earlier this year Ideas Test created our Small Is Beautiful Commission.

We wanted to support performance work that was able to go to the smallest spaces and, most importantly, spoke to our audiences.

Ideas Test asked a panel consisting of 4 community members from Swale and Medway to look at the all the submissions and after lots of deliberation they chose Total Insight Theatre‘s production idea Mr and Mrs Polluto to be the commission.

Mr and Mrs Polluto is an engaging tale created for children and families aged 3+. It uses shadow puppetry and live music and performance to tell the story of a family, The Pollutos, who never recycle their rubbish.

Total Insight Theatre will be taking Mr and Mrs Polluto to the following schools, just before the Summer holidays.

  • Hoo Primary School – Monday 17 July
  • Eastchurch Primary School – Wednesday 19 July

If you would be interested in hosting a performance at a school or community venue get in contact with us to have a chat about upcoming work.

Total Insight Theatre will here will also be public performances at the following venues in Swale and Medway;

On Saturday 22 July, Total Insight Theatre members will be at No.34, between 11am to 2pm, to lead a Junk Modelling workshopwhere all ages can come in, create art out of junk, and meet the Total Insight Theatre team.

As a finale for this phase of the project we have two performances at No.34 on Saturday 29 July at 11am & 1pm, with a Puppet Making Play Session after each show. 

We’d love to see you at any of the events.
